Halloween Number Recognition Activity Pack
0-20 Spider Playdough / Tracing mats – These mats are excellent for:
- tracing the digits 0-20,
- tracing number words 0-20
- make a collection – make playdough spiders or mini erasers or plastic spiders to the web to match the focus number
- making the quantity using a ten frame learning tool
- count the spider pictures – practice the 5 counting principles to count how many spiders there are on each mat. Students need to build strategies to make sure:
- each spider must be included (touched) exactly once as the numbers are said. Numbers cannot be said until a spider is touched
- each number must be said once and in the correct order
- the spiders can be touched in any order, and the counting starting point does not change how many there are
- the arrangement of the spiders does not affect how many there are. This includes hiding some spiders under a piece of paper
- the last number said tells us ‘how many’ in the whole collection. It does not describe the last spider touched

We used halloween themed creepy crawly counters to help scaffold the activities.
